Brantome,  Pierre  de  Bourdeilles,  seigneur  de.  rgao  B71 

Memoires,  contenant  les  vies  des  hommes  illustres  et  grands  capi- 
taines  etrangers  de  son  terns.    2v.     1739. 

Brantome  (c.  1 540-1614)  was  a  French  soldier  and  courtier. 

"The  great  merit  of  Brantome  lies  in  the  extraordinary  vividness  of  his  powers  of 
literary  presentment ...  His  irregular,  brightly  coloured,  and  easily  flowing  manner, 
represents,  as  hardly  any  age  has  ever  been  represented,  the  characteristics  of  the  great 
society  of  his  time...  [His]  unquestioning  acceptance  of,  and  belief  in,  the  moral  stand- 
ards of  his  own  society,  give  a  genuineness  and  a  freshness  to  his  work  which  are  very 
rare  in  literature.  Few  writers,  again,  have  had  the  knack  of  hitting  off  character, 
superficially  it  is  true,  yet  with  sufficient  distinction,  which  Brantome  has."  Saints- 
bury's  Short  history  of  French  literature.

taines  frangois  de  son  terns.    4v.     1739. 

"Indifferent  to  honor  and  morality,  he  is  an  impartial  witness  to  the  vice  and  crime 

of  his  epoch.     None  has  mirrored  more  truly  the  Valois  court  or  its  moral  ideas."     New

Reminiscences  of  some  of  the  earlier  members  of  a  famous  literary  society  of  Cam- 
bridge University,  humorously  dubbed  the  "Apostles"  because  its  membership  was 
limited  to  12.  It  was  in  its  prime  between  1824  and  1840,  and  has  numbered  among  its 
members  -some  of  the  most  distinguished  Englishmen  of  the  century.  Henry  Sidgwick 
was  a  prominent  "Apostle"  and  in  the  recently  published  memoir  of  his  life  (92  S5682) 
there  are  many  interesting  allusions  to  the  society.

of  the  "obscure  and  important  questions  of  the  subjective  tendency  in  private  history,  of 
the  standards  of  sincerity,  and  of  the  relative  value  of  the  deliberate  self-study  and  the 
unconscious  self-revelation."

Hall,  Samuel  Carter.  920  H17 

Book  of  memories  of  great  men  and  women  of  the  age,  from  per- 
sonal acquaintance.     [1877.]     Virtue. 

Hall  (1800-89)  was  an  author  and  editor  who  seems  to  have  been  more  or  less 
intimate  with  the  literary  people  of  the  England  of  his  day  and  to  have  been  on  a  friend- 
ly footing  with  many  of  the  artists.

Chiefly  pen  portraits  of  the  author's  friends  and  contemporaries.  Many  of  the 
papers  have  a  peculiar  interest,  either  because  they  bring  out  an  unfamiliar  phase  of  a 
well-known  character,  or  because  they  introduce  the  reader  to  some  little  known  but 
unique  personality.

House  in  St.  Martin's  street;  being  chronicles  of  the  Burney  family.

The  book  is  named  from  the  house  of  Sir  Isaac  Newton,  which  was  occupied  by 
the  Burneys  from  1774  to  1783,  but  in  reality  the  book  follows  the  family  about,  es- 
pecially Fanny,  to  Streatham,  Bath,  Brighton  and  elsewhere,  in  such  a  way  that  the 
title  is  something  of  a  misnomer.

Brahms,  and  from  these  three  artists  a  generalized  idea  of  the  special  problems  of  the 
artist's  life  is  drawn.  The  last  two  lectures  were  delivered  before  the  Dante  Society.

magnificent  passions. .  .The  quality  of  the  collection  was  more  remarkable  than  its 
number:  for  it  was  not  made  at  haphazard,  but  selected  by  design,  under  the  eye  of 
one  by  whom  all  that  was  eminent  in  English  story  was  thoroughly  known  and  ap-

history  and  genealogy  of  this  ancient  Scottish  family. 

"To  a  Norman  gentleman,  M.  Toustain  de  Richebourg,  our  chronicler  is  indebted 
for  many  of  his  archaeological  materials;  while  abundance  of  lighter  matter,  concerning 
more  modern  times  and  persons,  has  been  gathered  from  journals,  diaries,  and  memorials 

kept  by  the  Lindsays It  is  by  no  means  a  constant  fact  that  every  heraldic  painter 

shall  execute  his  labour  of  love  and  reverence  with  so  much  sincerity,  delicacy  and 
patience  as  Lord  Lindsay  has.  He  has  given  us  a  book  which  Scott  would  have  de- 
lighted to  honour."     Athenceum,  1849.

Crabbe;  Moore;  Lord  Byron;  Wordsworth  and  Southey. 

Its  charm  for  the  most  part  is  that  it  brings  us  into  familiar  friendship  with  a  host 
of  old  Scottish  ladies,  Edinburgh  advocates,  antiquarian  lairds,  and  great  folk  whom  we 
had  learned  to  know  a  little  in  Lockhart  and  other  writers  of  memoirs.  Some  of  the 
material  is  from  printed  sources,  but  a  great  deal  of  it  Miss  Maccunn  has  drawn  from 
stores  of  unpublished  correspondence.  Beyond  its  burden  of  entertainment  the  chief 
merit  of  the  book  is  the  light  it  throws  on  the  genesis  of  Scott's  poems  and  novels.  Con- 
densed from  Nation,  igio.

"Interesting  selection  of  intimate  letters,  which  covers  the  lives  of  Cosimo,  Piero, 
and  Lorenzo.  She  has  taken  her  material  not  merely  from  the  well-known  printed 
sources,  but  also  from  those  many  little  volumes  issued  privately  in  honour  of  the  mar- 
riage of  a  friend — ^in  accordance  with  a  graceful  Italian  custom  which  has  successfully 
prevented  quantities  of  valuable  material  from  being  of  use  to  any  but  the  few — and 
above  all  from  the  Medici  archives  in  Florence.  Consequently  much  of  the  contents  of 
the  present  volume  is  altogether  new. .  .The  majority  of  the  letters  are  political."  Athe-

"Authorities  consulted,"  v.  i,  p.  15-17. 

This  work  saps  the  foundations  of  many  a  time-honored  misconception  built  upon 
stories  that  cannot  bear  critical  examination.  The  author  places  before  us  the  results 
of  the  most  recent  research,  impartially  sifting  the  evidence  as  he  goes;  it  is  we  who 
draw  the  inevitable  conclusions.  In  the  course  of  his  survey  he  conscientiously  ex- 
amines the  life  of  each  member  of  the  Medici  family  whose  name  has  come  down  to 
posterity.  The  work  accordingly  comprises  more  than  a  hundred  biographical  sketches 
of  members  of  the  house  of  Medici,  beginning  with  its  founder  Giovanni  di  Bicci,  and 
ending  with  the  electress  Anna  Maria  Ludovica;  while  the  connected  subjects  upon 
which  it  throws  light  are  of  the  most  varied  character.    Condensed  from  Athencnim,  1909.

to  provide  with  husbands  among  men  of  rank  in  France  for  the  better  maintaining  of

included  in  the  first  census.  The  work  will  probably  be  of  service  chiefly  to  genealo-

there  is  a  general  index  at  the  end  of  each  volume.

tains nothing  about  the  seals  of  the  Orient  since  the  founding  of  Islam,  and  yet  in 
modern  times  there  is  no  part  of  the  world  where  seals  are  used  so  cormnonly  as  in  the

of  all  his  labor.  He  tells  just  enough  of  the  child's  surrounding^s  at  Portsmouth,  of  the 
clerk  and  youthful  editor  in  New  York;  he  follows  the  man  sympathetically  through  his 
Boston  years  of  prosperous  toil  and  golden  ease,  to  the  honored  close.  It  is  a  happy  life-

Alison,  Sir  Archibald.  92  A413 

Some  account  of  my  life  and  writings;  an  autobiography;  ed.  by 
Lady  Alison.    2v.    1883.    Blackwood. 

English  historian  (1792-1867). 

"The  last  volume  of  his  autobiography  contains  full  details  of  many  interviews  with 
distinguished  persons  in  London  and  elsewhere,  his  reception  at  the  houses  of  the 
nobility,  and  his  speeches  at  public  dinners  and  meetings,  together  with  speculation* 
upon  politics,  human  nature  and  criticism. .  .On  the  whole,  his  accounts  of  distinguished 
men,  though  coloured  by  his  prejudices,  are  sensible  as  far  as  they  go.  The  book  is 
amusingly  characteristic  of  his  even  temper,  calm  conviction  of  his  own  merits,  and  con- 
fidence in  his  own  predictions;  but,  like  all  autobiographies,  is  chiefly  interesting  in 
the  earlier  part."     Dictionary  of  national  biography. 

Allingham,  William,  1824-89.  92  A437 

Diary;  ed.  by  H.  Allingham  and  D.Radford.     1907.     Macmillan. 

"List  of  works,"  p.390-391. 

Allingham  was  an  Irish  poet.  The  interest  of  his  diary  depends  little  on  his  own 
literary  achievements  and  much  on  the  fame  of  his  friends,  the  chief  of  whom  were 
Tennyson  and  Carlyle.  Rossetti  and  Browning  are  often  mentioned  and  a  host  of  lesser 
literary  names.  Allingham  knew  how  to  draw  the  best  from  his  friends  in  conversation 
and  we  learn  much  of  their  characteristics  from  his  pages.

Angelo  (1760-1839?)  was  the  son  of  an  Italian  fencing  master,  Domenico  Angelo 
Malevolti  Tremamondo,  known  in  England  as  Domenico  Angelo.  He  became  the  virtual

"The  stories  range  among  all  ranks  of  society,  from  the  regent  and  William  IV  to 
Macklin  and  Kean,  and  from  Byron  to  Lady  Hamilton.  Verisimilitude  is  occasionally 
lacking,  and  the  writer  abstains  throughout  with  a  graceful  ease  from  giving  any  dates.""

The  "Memories"  tell  little  of  Rugby  or  of  Arnold,  but  give  some  glimpses  of  Rugby 
boys  who  lived  to  be  famous.  The  recollections  of  Indian  service  are  somewhat  random 
and  disconnected.  Thirty  years  of  this  service  the  author  spent  in  Madras,  as  director  of 
public  instruction,  as  chief  secretary  to  the  Council,  and  later  as  member  of  the  Council.

This  very  full  memoir  of  the  eighth  duke  of  Argyll  (i  823-1 900)  consists  of  an 
autobiography,  which,  however,  comes  down  only  to  1857,  supplemented  by  a  memoir 
by  the  dowager  duchess,  letters,  etc.  The  duke's  interests  were  many.  He  is  well 
known  as  the  author  of  "The  reign  of  law,"  and  other  scientific  works,  he  played  a 
considerable  part  in  politics  and  ranked  high  as  an  orator.  The  book  has  many  interest-

Baconian  authorship  of  Shakespeare's  plays.  She  lived  for  five  years  in  England  while 
making  her  researches.  The  story  of  her  life  is  tragic,  for  her  brilliant  though  unsound 
mind  finally  gave  way  under  the  strain  of  her  delusion,  but  her  biography  has  interest 
and  value,  if  only  for  the  glimpse  it  gives  of  her  friends,  Hawthorne,  Carlyle  and  Emer- 
son. The  former  was  from  first  to  last  her  faithful  and  devoted  friend,  and  all  three

For  the  most  part  an  impartial  plain-speaking,  well-informed  account  of  a  wonder- 
ful personality.  Mr  Lawton  has  not  made  any  notable  additions  to  the  materials  for 
Balzac's  biography,  but  he  has  gathered  up  nearly  all  the  most  illuminative  anecdotes, 
and  retold  most  of  the  bits  of  history  collected  by  various  experts  from  printed  and 
manuscript  sources.  He  has  also  sketched  the  plots  of  many  of  the  principal  novels. 
If  there  be  any  admirers  of  Balzac  who  are  sensitive  to  criticism  of  his  manners  and 
habits,  they  may  be  advised  to  leave  Mr  Lawton's  stout  book  unread.  Condensed  from

Blackie  (1809-95)  was  a  Scottish  philologrist,  for  30  years  professor  of  Greek  in  the 
University  of  Edinburgh.  The  letters  to  his  parents  cover  about  two  years  and  a  half, 
while  he  was  a  student  in  Germany  and  Italy.  The  youthful  letters  are  followed  by 
others  written  ten  years  later  to  Miss  Wyld,  whom  he  afterward  married.  The  rest  of 
the  correspondence,  and  the  largest  part,  covers  Blackie's  married  life,  1843-95.  The 
letters  are  various  in  theme  but  uniform  in  their  tone  of  steadily  sustained  cheerful- 
ness.    They  contain  references  to  nearly  all  the  distinguished  men  of  his  time.

(New  York  colonial  tracts,  no.4.) 

Written  to  his  patron  from  New  York  city.  They  afford  glimpses  of  commercial, 
political  and  domestic  affairs,  but  are  chiefly  devoted  to  the  enumeration  and  price  of 
various  commodities  which  the  writer  sends  at  different  times  to  Mr  Clarke.

Hutton,  Edward.  Giovanni  Boccaccio;  a  biographical  study.  1909.

There  is  (1910)  no  other  study  of  Boccaccio  in  English  to  compare  with  Mr 
Button's  in  fulness  or  in  literary  worth.  The  many  illustrations  from  old  pictures, 
books  and  manuscripts  add  much  to  the  value  of  the  book.

The  comtesse  de  Boigne  (i  781-1866)  was  a  brilliant  and  attractive  Frenchwoman 
whose  salon,  during  the  first  half  of  the  19th  century  was  frequented  by  many  dis- 
tinguished persons.  Her  vivacious  memoirs  throw  many  sidelights  on  events  from  the 
reign  of  Louis  XVI  to  the  revolution  of  1848.  She  relates  much  of  the  gossip  of  her 
time  and  her  personalities  are  often  touched  with  prejudice.

of  empire — the  famous  Wilderness  road,  along  which  many  pioneers  passed  in  the 
early  peopling  of  the  West.  The  book  is  not  only  a  biography  of  Boone,  but  an  account

Brace  (1826-90)  was  an  eminent  American  philanthropist,  chief  founder  of  the 
New  York  Children's  Aid  Society.  His  life  may  almost  be  said  to  be  a  history  of 
philanthropic  effort  in  the  United  States  during  a  quarter  of  a  century.  Not  only  has 
the  society  which  he  built  up  in  New  York  done  an  immense  work,  but  his  system  has 
been  widely  copied  in  other  states  and  in  Europe.

Dr  Brandes,  who  is  eminent  as  philosopher,  critic  and  literary  artist,  shows  himself 
in  this  attractive  volume  mainly  in  the  last  of  these  capacities.  The  book  comes  to  an 
end  while  he  is  still  under  thirty.  The  first  half  deals  mainly  with  his  life  in  Denmark 
and  throws  many  interesting  side-lights  on  Danish  scholars  and  men  of  letters.  The 
second  half  tells  of  his  sojourn  in  France  and  Italy  and  his  brief  visit  to  England.

Brooks  (1815-74)  was  from  an  early  age  a  voluminous  contributor  to  the  press,  be- 
sides writing  a  number  of  novels.  In  1870  he  assumed  the  editorship  of  "Punch."  He 
was  a  great  talker  of  the  old  sort;  a  tremendous  writer,  turning  out  jokes,  poems,  parlia- 
mentary reports,  any  kind  of  "copy,"  with  incredible  ease — a  born  journalist.  His  let- 
ters are  of  the  kind  that  must  have  filled  the  recipient  with  joy,  but  that  somehow  in

Readable  volume  of  appreciation,  written  from  the  point  of  view  of  the  negro. 
Disappointing  in  that  it  betrays  little  original  research  and  contains  many  inaccuracies, 
partly  because  the  author  has  relied  on  his  predecessors  in  the  field.  The  last  chapter 
is  a  notable  discussion  of  the  race  question  as  it  stands  to-day  in  the  light  of  John 
Brown's  sacrifice.

No  pains  have  been  spared  to  produce  a  biography  both  accurate  and  complete. 
Author  has  traced  Brown's  life  from  day  to  day  throughout  the  entire  active  period  of

printed  or  verbal  statement  with  the  rigid  thoroughness  of  a  laboratory  investigator. 
We  have  here  a  book,  and  the  only  book,  in  which  the  unquestioned  facts  of  John 
Brown's  career  are  completely  exhibited.  If  the  author's  conclusions  differ  from  the

evidence  upon  which  they  are  based.     Condensed  from  Nation,  1910.

in  1842  and  remained  there  for  30  years.  The  letters  are  those  of  friends  and  are 
chiefly  occupied  with  the  personal  affairs  of  the  writers.  The  volume  is  of  much  inter-

"The  late  Professor  Hall  Griffin  was  an  enthusiastic  student  of  Browning,  and  had 
collected  a  large  amount  of  biographical  and  illustrative  material.  Among  other  things, 
he  discovered  the  diary  of  Alfred  Domett;  he  visited  and  identified  all  Browning's 
homes,  early  and  late;  and  his  friendship  with  the  Browning  family  and  with  some  of 
Browning's  closest  friends  gave  him  access  to  many  unpublished  sources  of  information 
. . .  Book  is  more  than  a  thesaurus  of  facts.  It  is  admirably  written,  and  full  of  good 
sense  and  good  judgment.  It  does  not  attempt  to  provide  any  elaborate  critical  ap- 
paratus, but  such  criticism  as  is  given  seems  to  us  exceptionally  balanced  and  sane.  The 
book  is  primarily  a  biography,  and  in  the  second  place  a  history  of  literary  influences

of  courts  and  social  conventions,  and  you  have  an  unusual  personality.  Madame  de

Sir  William  Butler;  an  autobiography.    191 1.    Constable. 

Sir  William  Butler  (1838-1910)  was  an  Irish  soldier  who  served  under  Lord  Wolse- 
Icy  in  Canada,  in  Ashanti,  in  Egypt  and  in  South  Africa.  The  most  interesting  part  of 
the  book  is  perhaps  to  be  found  in  the  last  three  chapters  which  relate  to  the  South 
African  war.  Disapproving  of  the  British  management  of  the  situation,  just  before  the 
outbreak  of  hostilities  he  resigned  his  command  and  returned  to  England.  The  auto- 
biography ends  at  this  point  but  there  is  a  brief  supplementary  chapter  by  his  daughter. 
The  book  makes  agreeable  reading,  both  from  the  vigor  of  the  narrative  and  from  the 
frankness  of  the  views  expressed.

They  offer  the  most  suggestive  commentaiy  on  his  poetry;  they  give  the  truest  portrait 
of  the  man;  they  possess,  at  their  best,  in  their  ease,  freshness  and  racy  vigour,  a  very 
high  literary  value."     Preface.

Cardano  (1501-76)  was  an  Italian  mathematician,  physician,  astrologer  and  author, 
one  of  the  most  interesting  characters  connected  with  the  revival  of  science  in  Europe. 
The  work  of  Cardano's  which  retains  most  interest  for  this  generation  is  his  auto- 
biography, "De  vita  propria."  In  its  clearness  and  frankness  of  self-revelation  it  stands 
alone  among  records  of  its  class  and  may  be  compared  with  the  autobiography  of  Ben-

Mr  Conway's  personal  intercourse  with  Carlyle  was  long-continued  and  intimate  and 
he  has  given  evidently  a  faithful  and  trustworthy  delineation  of  the  man.  The  book  is 
rich  in  anecdote  and  conversation,  especially  that  relating  to  Carlyle's  early  life.  The 
most  interesting  part  is  the  correspondence,  containing  extracts  from  letters  written  by 
Carlyle  to  two  college  friends  between  the  years  1814  and  1824,  when  Carlyle  was  a

By  a  friend  and  fellow-countryman  of  Carlyle.     First  published  in  1881. 

Masterly  little  biography;  a  picture  deftly  painted  and  pleasant,  yet  far  above  the 
mere  art  of  the  portrait-painter;  appreciative  to  the  verge  of  hero-worship,  but  stopping 
short  at  that  point  where  hero-worship  becomes  idolatry: — a  bit  of  work,  indeed,  which 
it  would  be  hard  to  surpass  for  sympathy,  delicacy,  liberality  of  view,  and  wealth  of 
friendly  insight.  Read,  as  it  should  be  read,  after  the  "Reminiscences,"  it  purifies  the 
memory  of  certain  igfnoble  moods.     Condensed  from  Contemporary  review,  1881.

Castiglione  (1478-1529)  was  an  Italian  author  and  statesman  whose  "Libro  del 
cortegiano,"  a  manual  for  courtiers,  was  one  of  the  most  widely  popular  books  of  the 
period,  both  in  Italy  and  elsewhere.  It  is  notable  for  the  high  ideals  which  it  sets  forth 
as  to  the  qualities  of  the  perfect  courtier.

Catharine  II,  empress  of  Russia.  92  C279 

Memoirs,  with  a  preface  by  A.  Herzen;  tr.  from  the  French.  1859. 

"As  this  work  was  not  published  until  the  outbreak  of  the  Crimean  War,  the  ques- 
tion of  its  genuineness  was  everywhere  raised.  From  internal  evidence  it  is  now  gener- 
ally accepted  as  authentic;  though  it  was  long  in  the  hands  of  Catherine's  imperial 
successors,  and  the  proof  that  it  was  not  tampered  with  is  not  quite  complete.  The 
volume  has  to  do  almost  exclusively  with  Catherine's  early  years.  But  it  is  a  most 
extraordinary  uncovering  of  Russian  court  life.  The  imbecility  of  Peter  the  Third,  the 
dissimulation  and  ambition  of  his  wife,  the  mixture  of  barbarism  and  brutality  that 
everywhere  prevailed,  are  nowhere  else  more  graphically  portrayed."  Adams's  Manual

where  it  was  permitted  him  to  disport  himself  at  will . . .  He  seemed,  moreover,  constitu-

as   true   what   he  was   anxious   should   be   true He   added   something  specific   to   our

and  temperaments.  Mrs  Cornwallis-West  is  able  to  write  with  such  detachment  of  Lady 
Randolph  Churchill  as  to  exploit  somewhat  droUy  her  beauty  and  personal  charm.  The 
letters  printed  and  the  conversations  quoted  abound  in  allusions  of  the  sort  that  people 
usually  leave  their  heirs  to  publish.     Condensed  from  Nation,  1908.

"It  has  seemed  to  the  writer  not  only  an  obligation  of  friendship  but  of  patriotism 
to  make  some  record  of  the  personality  of  Mr.  Cleveland,  as  revealed  in  an  intimacy  of 
many  years.  The  large  traits  of  his  character,  and  those  imptortant  public  services  which 
far  transcended  partisan  accomplishment,  have  made  their  impress  upon  the  American 
people  and  the  world. .  .Sympathetic  speakers  and  writers  have  told  much,  also,  of  his 
characteristics  and  his  daily  walk,  but  the  full  portrait  has  not  yet  been  rounded  out. 
I  desire  merely  to  add  a  few  intimate  touches  to  that  portrait,  not  thinking  to  complete 
it;  but  only  to  help  loyally  toward  its  completion."    Introduction.

"Bibliography,"  p.409. 

"The  book  is  properly  named.  There  is  a  preliminary  sketch  of  Cleveland's  life 
before  he  became  a  national  figure,  and  hardly  any  really  important  event  of  his  career 
goes  entirely  unmentioned:  but  the  book  is  not  a  biogrraphy. .  .Mr.  Parker's. .  .are  not  the 
only  recollections  the  book  contains.  Others  of  Cleveland's  friends  have  contributed  to 
his  store,  and  perhaps  the  most  valuable  of  all  are  certain  of  Qeveland's  own,  given 
from  time  to  time  in  conversation,  dealing  with  some  of  the  most  interesting  episodes 
of  his  career  and  with  the  best-known  of  his  contemporaries.  And  yet,  although 
thoroughly  reminiscential,  the  book  is  not  light  and  gossipy,  or  of  a  newspaper  or  maga- 
zine flavor,  but  a  careful  presentment  of  a  great  public  character  as  seen  by  his  inti- 
mates."   Nation,  1909.

He  emigrated  to  America  in  1792  and  began  the  publication  of  "Porcupine's  gazette," 
which  upheld  the  Federal  side  in  politics.  Twice  prosecuted  for  libel,  he  returned  to 
England  and  started  his  famous  "Weekly  political  register,"  which,  from  being  a  Tory 
organ,  gradually  changed  its  politics  and  became  the  determined  opponent  of  the  govern- 
ment.    Among  his  best  known  works  is  his  "Grammar  of  the  English  language."

story  with  scholarship  and  clearness,  tracing  the  early  rivalry  between  the  houses  of 
Montmorency  and  Guise,  and,  when  the  personal  strife  merges  in  the  larger  political

The  collection  of  papers  from  which  the  contents  of  these  volumes  have  been 
selected  was  chiefly  made  by  John  Boyle  (1707-62),  fifth  earl  of  Orrery.  He  was  the 
intimate  friend  of  most  of  the  literary  celebrities  of  the  day,  especially  Swift  and  Pope, 
and  was  himself  the  author  of  a  life  of  Swift  and  a  translation  of  Pliny's  letters.  His 
correspondence  contains  interesting  glimpses  of  contemporary  society,  but  little  history.

"The  especial  interest  of  this  autobiography  aside  from  the  simple,  straight-forward 
account  of  the  author's  own  life  and  work,  lies  in  the  sincere  report  of  impressions  of 
contemporary  men  and  women,  and  in  the  prominence  given  to  socialistic  ideas  and 
movements  started  by  William  Morris.  Most  is  told,  naturally,  of  the  Pre-Raphaelite 
group  of  painters,  the  promoters  of  the  arts  and  crafts  movement,  and  their  friends, 
with  whom  he  had  most  to  do.  Walter  Crane  may  perhaps  claim  a  wider  interest  among 
men  than  some  of  his  greater  confreres,  by  reason  of  the  variety  of  expression  which 
his  art  found  for  itself."    A.  L.  A.  booklist,  igo8.

The  book  can  rightly  claim  to  be  the  first  considerable  biography  of  Cranmer  which 
has  been  written  according  to  the  canons  of  modern  scientific  historical  work.  It  is 
obviously  based  in  large  measure  on  original  research;  it  is  clear,  and  for  the  most  part 
consistent  and  convincing;  and  though  it  contains  nothing  that  is  startlingly  new,  it  ar- 
ranges in  useful  and  readable  form  a  vast  amount  of  hitherto  scattered  and  not  always 
trustworthy  information.     Condensed  from  American  historical  review,  1905.

contains,  beside  the  sketch  of  his  life,  reminiscences  by  William  James  and  others,  a 
number  of  documents  relating  to  his  sociological  projects  in  London  and  New  York  and

were  written  not  so  much  to  acquaint  the  recipient  with  the  details  of  the  sender's  life, 
as  to  foster  the  ideal  of  friendship,  and  it  is  with  this  understanding  that  we  must  ap-

that  the  man  of  whom  in  early  life  he  strongly  disapproved  has  suffered  injustice  and 
failed  of  recognition  as  a  most  potent  factor  in  saving  the  Union.  He  makes  very  vivid

Joseph  Dudley  (1647-1720)  was  a  colonial  governor  of  Massachusetts.  Though  an 
able  administrator,  he  frequently  antagonized  the  colonists  by  his  arbitrary  methods  and 
has  been  unfavorably  viewed  by  former  historians.  The  present  study  is  not  intended 
to  meet  the  criticisms  of  his  character  but  rather  to  set  forth  the  Stuart  colonial  policy 
and  Dudley  as  its  exponent.

Mrs  Stuart  began  her  friendship  with  George  Eliot  as  a  distant  worshipper  of  her 
art.  Her  heartfelt  homage  was  met  by  a  gentle  and  dignified  gratitude  deepening  into 
close  personal  attachment  which  pervades  all  these  letters,  the  last  of  which  was  written 
four  days  before  George  Eliot's  death.  They  are  a  real  addition  to  the  literature  that 
has  gathered  around  her  name.

an  even  keel  between  frankness  and  reserve.  The  personal  charm  of  the  third  Na-

Falkland  (i6io?-43)  was  an  English  politician  and  writer,  member  of  Parliament, 
and  secretary  of  state  in  1642.  At  the  outbreak  of  the  civil  war  he  joined  the  King^s 
party  and  was  killed  at  the  battle  of  Newbury. 

Industrious  and  sympathetic  analysis  of  Falkland,  of  his  character  and  of  the  part 
he  played.  Mr  Marriott's  verdict  is  that  Falkland  was  "one  of  the  greatest  men  of  the 
17th  century."    Condensed  from  Athenceum,  1907.

Fessenden  (1806-69)  was  one  of  the  leaders  of  the  Republican  party  through  the 
antislavery  struggle,  the  Civil  war  and  reconstruction.  The  records  of  these  events  are 
found  only  in  part  in  these  volumes,  but  what  is  lacking  in  the  way  of  history  is  more 
than  made  good  by  private  letters  and  memoranda  of  the  senator,  giving  us  his  inmost 
thoughts  at  critical  periods  and  portraying  his  personality  as  no  other  hand  could  do. 
The  arrangement  of  the  matter  is  defective,  but  the  matter  itself  is  of  the  first  class.

"Frenilly ...  while  not  a  conspicuous  figure  in  the  history  of  the  Revolution,  was 
acquainted  with  those  who  were.  He  was  a  typical  product  of  the  privileged  class  of  the 
old  regime,  a  young  man-about-town  with  no  other  purpose  in  life  than  to  shine  in 
society.  His  'Recollections,'  which  were  begun  only  in  1837,  show  a  remarkably  keen 
memory,  particularly  for  small  but  picturesque  details,  but  they  are  so  deeply  dyed  in 
aristocratic  prejudice  that  he  would  be  a  bold  historian  who  would  be  willing  to  rest 
content  with  such  a  source  for  any  incident  which  it  recounts."    Nation,  1909.

Charles  E.  Garman  (1850-1907)  was  connected  for  25  years  with  the  faculty  of 
Amherst  College,  and  exercised  a  remarkable  influence  as  a  teacher  who  made  philosophy 
a  matter  of  vital  interest  to  young  men.  He  lifted  college  teaching  out  of  mechanical 
and  academic  routine,  and  passing  by  the  opportunity  to  publish  or  to  pursue  original 
investigation,  devoted  all  his  energies  to  being  an  inspiring  teacher.  Appendix  contains 
tributes  by  former  students  who  had  felt  his  charm  and  power.

Lady  Giffard  was  the  sister  of  Sir  William  Temple,  lived  with  him,  accompanied 
him  in  his  diplomatic  missions  and  survived  him  for  some  years.  As  a  letter-writer  she 
does  not  shine  in  comparison  with  her  sister-in-law,  Dorothy  Osborne,  to  whose  "Letters" 
this  volume  is  in  a  sense  a  sequel,  but  her  letters  give  perhaps  a  wider  view  of  the 
domestic  and  courtly  life  of  the  time,  and  they  carry  on  the  story  of  Sir  William  Tem- 
ple's life  which  his  wife's  letters  begin.

Mr  Gilman  (i  831-1908)  scored  more,  and  more  various,  successes  than  any  other 
man  who  ever  dealt  with  education  in  America.  Others  may  have  equaled  him  in  the 
quality  of  their  service,  but  none  conducted  so  many  important  enterprises  so  suc- 
cessfully. Deeply  associated  with  the  organization  of  the  Sheffield  Scientific  School 
at  New  Haven,  with  the  upbuilding  of  the  University  of  California,  the  foundation  of 
Johns  Hopkins  University,  and  of  its  Medical  School,  he  found  energy  at  seventy  to 
inaugurate  the  work  of  the  Carnegie  Institution,  and  in  the  last  year  of  his  life  he 
practically  gave  shape  to  the  Russell  Sage  Foundation  for  sociological  and  charitable 
investigation.  In  treating  such  a  career,  the  biographer  had  no  choice  but  to  merge 
the  hero  in  his  causes.  This  Dr  Franklin,  a  former  Johns  Hopkins  colleague,  has 
done,  adding  as  a  sort  of  supplement  a  selection  from  his  intimate  correspondence,  and 
a  brief  sketch  of  his  family  life  by  Mrs  Gilman.  Dr  Franklin  has  set  forth  with  admi- 
rable orderliness  and  lucidity  the  chief  activities  of  a  varied  and  complicated  life.

In  his  life  of  Goethe,  Lewes  speaks  of  Goethe's  mother  as  "one  of  the  pleasantect 
figures  in  German  literature."  The  letters  are  natural  and  delightful,  full  of  pride  in 
her  famous  son,  warmth  of  affection  and  joyousness  of  spirit.

still  less  possible  to  speak  politely ...  The  other  stumbling-block  is  the  attitude  of  adora-

The  author  of  this  fascinating  book  of  reminiscence  was  born  in  England  in  1848. 
The  next  year  his  father  emigrated  to  America  and  settled  in  the  Illinois  country.  There 
the  sensitive  and  keenly  observant  boy  grew  to  manhood.  The  thread  of  incident  run- 
ning through  the  first  two-thirds  of  the  book  gives  it  somewhat  the  character  of  a  novel, 
but  the  last  chapters  have  slight  connection  with  what  has  gone  before.  Three  chapters 
are  given  to  Fremont  and  his  experiences,  and  there  is  an  admirable  description  of  the 
Lincoln-Douglas  debate,  and  of  the  city  of  St.  Louis  about  i860.  It  is  a  matter  of  regret

Lady  Hamilton  (i76i?-i8is)  was  a  celebrated  English  beauty,  wife  of  Sir  William 
Hamilton,  ambassador  at  Naples.  She  was  a  powerful  influence  in  the  life  of  Lord 
Nelson  and  was  supposed  to  have  played  a  considerable  part  in  the  political  relations  of 
the  court  of  Naples  with  England. 

"Mr.  Walter  Sichel  has  utilised  several  new  'sources'  for  the  life  of  Lady  Hamilton. 
Some  letters  by  her  were  not  acquired  by  the  British  Museum  until  1896  and  were 
therefore  unknown  to  earlier  writers  on  the  Neapolitan  period  of  Nelson's  life;  and 
there  can  be  no  doubt  that  the  author's  treatment  of  the  whole  subject  is  far  more  com- 
plete and  authoritative  than  that  of  Mr.  Cordy  Jeaffreson."  English  historical  review,

1910.     Houghton.

"To  those  who  still  practice  the  moribund  art  of  hobnobbing  with  books,  of  being 
intimate  with  them  and  running  in  on  them  for  informal  converse,  the  volume  offers 
endless  possibilities  of  intellectual  stimulus  and  pleasant  intercourse.  Nine-tenths  of  the 
collection  are  letters  to  Basil  Hall  Chamberlain,  the  noted  and  devoted  student  of  Japan 
and  guide,  philosopher  and  familiar  mental  crony  of  Hearn's  Japanese  years.  In  these 
letters  Hearn  has  almost  literally  poured  out  his  mind  to  his  friend.  The  comments  of  a 
keen  critic  of  literature  and  of  life,  the  subtle  characterizations  of  an  intuitively 
sympathetic  observer,  the  whimsies  of  a  child-like  and  sensitive  imagination,  and  the 
joyous  discoveries  and  puzzled  bewilderments  of  a  delver  into  alien  mysteries,  all  tumble 
over  one  another  in  the  fine  disarray  of  an  untrammeled  spontaneity  and  with  the  un- 
sought perfection  of  trained  faculties  at  play."     Life,  1911.

"Bibliography,"  by  Laura  Stedman,  p.336-416. 

Dr  Gould  approaches  the  subject  from  a  novel  point  of  view.  He  is  an  eye  special- 
ist, well  known  for  a  series  of  studies  in  which  he  has  derived  the  eccentricities  of 
various  geniuses  from  faulty  vision.  In  this  respect  Hearn,  with  his  one  eye  intensely 
myopic,  offered  a  tempting  field  which  the  oculist  could  not  avoid.  In  the  actual  details 
of  Hearn's  life,  Dr  Gould  presents  not  much  that  is  new.  The  most  valuable  parts  of 
the  book  are  those  in  which  Hearn's  literary  activities  are  traced.  Besides  a  long  and 
complete  analysis  of  all  his  published  works,  with  extracts  from  the  reviews  of  the  time,

The  book  lays  no  claim  to  scholarship.  It  cites  no  sources  and  gives  no  references 
to  authorities.  It  is  a  simple  narration  of  the  fortunes  of  Henry  IV,  places  the  personal 
element  in  the  foreground  and  makes  love  affairs  and  court  intrigue  of  equal  importance 
with  the  movement  of  politics.

"Bibliography,"  p.431. 

When  Bishop  Huntington  (1819-1904)  first  entered  the  ministry  he  was  a  Unita- 
rian. Later  his  views  changed  and  he  became  rector  of  an  Episcopal  church  in  Boston 
and  from  1869  until  his  death  he  was  bishop  of  Central  New  York.  The  memoir  goes 
very  little  into  the  discussion  of  theological  questions,  but  shows  rather  the  man  as  his 
family  and  intimate  friends  knew  him.  The  glimpses  which  one  gets  of  his  early  life 
and  later  summers  spent  in  Hadley,  Massachusetts  are  particularly  delightful.

Domestic  life  of  Thomas  Jefferson;  comp.  from  family  letters  and

"When  the  great  collection  of  Jefferson's  manuscripts  was  sold  to  the  United  States 
government,  there  was  reserved  a  mass  of  papers  which  were  deemed  to  be  of  such  « 
private  nature  as  to  possess  no  value  in  the  national  archives,  and  to  belong  more  proper- 
ly to  the  family.  These  eventually  came  into  the  possession  of  Jefferson's  great-grand- 
daughter, and  they  form  the  raison  d'etre  of  this  book.  It  possesses  the  merits  and  de- 
merits which  might  be  expected,  the  documents  being  of  positive  value,  and  the  family 
recollections  and  traditions  of  distinct  interest;  but  the  book  is  faulty  in  method,  being 
both  ill-proportioned  and  disjointed.  It  is,  therefore,  far  more  valuable  to  the  maker 
than  to  the  reader  of  history."     Larned's  Literature  of  American  history.

a  visionary,  whose  illusions  physical  science  can  account  for.  He  attempts  to  dear  away 
the  mystery  that  surrounds  her  life  by  advancing  the  theory  that  she  acted  under  the 
advice  of  some  unknown  person.

Written  by  an  ardent  admirer  of  Joan  of  Arc,  who  is  conceived  as  saintly,  brave, 
of  high  intelligence,  a  natural  leader  of  men.  This  view  is  vigorously  upheld  against 
those  of  some  other  historians,  notably  that  of  Anatole  France  in  his  "Vie  de  Jeanne 
d'Arc,"  which  is  subjected  to  a  severe  and  evidently  merited  criticism.  Portraits,  maps. 
"A  strong,  clear,  well-ordered  brief,  and  will  be  an  invaluable  document  for  the 
next  biographer  of  the  Maid."    Nation,  igog.

here  presented  by  those  who  knew  and  loved  him  is  well  worth  preserving.  Condensed

"Bibliography,"  v.2,  p.1223-1274. 

Lord  Kelvin  (1824-1907),  one  of  the  very  few  men  raised  to  the  British  peerage 
for  purely  scientific  achievements,  was  professor  of  natural  philosophy  at  Glasgow 
University  from  1846  to  1899.  The  direct  successor  of  Newton,  he  launched  into  the 
world  the  principle  of  conservation  of  energy,  on  which  the  whole  fabric  of  modern 
physics  was  based.  The  world  knows  him  best  as  the  man  who  has  shown  how  prac- 
tically to  measure  electric  and  magnetic  quantities,  and  has  made  it  possible  to  link 
together  distant  continents  by  the  electric  telegraph. 

"Full  and  authoritative  account  of  his  life  and  work.  This  biography  was  begun 
during  the  life  of  Lord  Kelvin,  and,  in  fact,  had  his  cooperation;  after  his  death,  the 
original  sketch  was  greatly  extended  by  the  materials  furnished  from  his  letters,  diaries, 
and  other  documents  put  at  the  biographer's  disposal.  In  addition  to  the  abundant 
record  thus  available,  Professor  Thompson  had  the  high  privilege  of  being  a  personal 
friend  of  the  great  physicist.  The  result  is  a  book  which  will  appeal  strongly  not 
only  to  men  of  science,  who  have  been  eagerly  awaiting  it,  but  also  to  all  those  who 
have  an  interest  in  the  thought  of  the  nineteenth  century."    Nation,  jgio.

Alfred  Krupp  (1812-87)  was  the  son  and  successor  of  the  founder  of  the  great 
Krupp  steel-works  at  Essen,  Germany.  This  brief  biography  describes  the  rapid  develop- 
ment of  the  foundries  under  his  management,  and  gives  a  glimpse  of  the  welfare  work 
carried  on  there  among  the  employees.

tion of  fossil  plants,  considered  one  of  the  most  valuable  in  existence,  was  presented  by 
him  to  the  National  Museum  at  Washington. 

La  Farge,  John.  92  L143C 

Cortissoz,  Royal.  John  La  Farge;  a  memoir  and  a  study.  191 1. 

It  should  be  said  in  praise  and  definition  of  Mr  Cortissoz's  adroit  and  sympathetic 
study  that  no  opinion  and  no  phrase  in  it  would  disappoint  La  Farge  himself.  It  gives 
admirably  the  subtle  and  vivid  thinker,  the  fastidious  talker,  the  delightful  man  of  the 
world,  who  was  perhaps  the  greatest  social  figure  in  America  of  our  time.  Neither  a 
record  nor  a  criticism,  but  a  character  study.  Aim  is  to  make  us  hear  and  see  the  man ; 
a  knowledge  of  his  works  is  presupposed  and  the  delightful  effect  of  the  book  depends 
precisely  upon  this  limitation  of  the  field.     Condensed  from  Nation,  1911.

Mrs  La  Touche  (i  824-1 906)  was  an  Irishwoman  of  distinction  and  charm,  whose 
daughter  Rose  was  the  pupil  and  friend  of  Ruskin.  Several  of  the  letters  in  this  vol-

daily  life,  her  garden,  her  reading  and  other  occupations.

logical sequence.  The  result,  though  it  falls  short  of  the  author's  original  plan  for  an 
exhaustive  biography,  is  admirable  and  the  book  gives  a  vivid  impression  of  this  many- 
sided  musical  genius,  his  career  and  the  adulation  which  he  received.  There  are  126

Lord  Lovat  (1667?-! 747)  sided  with  the  government  in  the  Jacobite  uprising  of 
1715,  but  with  the  rebels  in  1745-46.  He  was  captured  at  the  battle  of  Culloden,  tried 
for  treason  and  executed.  Forbes  (1685-1747)  was  a  Scottish  judge  and  a  warm  tup- 
porter  of  the  government. 

"He  gives. .  .authorities  which  show  an  extent  of  research,  among  printed  and  on-

Recollections  by  an  American  painter  of  his  life  and  experience  in  Paris  and  in 
New  York.  Of  particular  interest  is  the  attractive  and  vivid  picture  of  the  life,  the 
feelings  and  sentiments  of  artists  and  art  students  in  Paris  and  on  their  summer  expedi- 
tions. Many  well-known  men  are  numbered  among  his  friends,  notably  Robert  Louis

Lowell,  Charles  Russell.  92  L956 

Life  and  letters  [ed.]  by  E.  W.  Emerson.    1907.    Houghton. 

Lowell  (1835-64)  was  a  nephew  of  the  poet.  At  the  outbreak  of  the  Civil  war  he 
applied  for  a  commission  in  the  regular  army.  He  showed  genuine  military  ability  and 
his  commission  to  be  brigadier-general  was  signed  on  the  day  that  he  was  killed  at  the 
battle  of  Cedar  Creek.  To  a  singular  degree  everyone  who  came  in  contact  with  Lowell 
seems  to  have  felt  the  fineness  of  his  spirit.  Mr  Emerson  prefaces  the  letters,  many  of 
which  were  written  to  his  wife  Josephine  Shaw  Lowell  and  to  his  friends  Thomas  Went- 
worth  Higginson  and  John  Murray  Forbes,  with  a  biographical  sketch.

the  Church;  and  as  he  lingers  in  each  place  gathers  up  in  their  order  the  events that 

were  associated  with  them.     He  makes  the  figure  of  Luther  stand  out  in  its  rugged  sim-

Unlike  the  usual  lives  of  Luther  which  represent  him  chiefly  as  a  theologian  and

drawn  largely  for  his  material  upon  Luther's  correspondence,  in  which  he  is  revealed 
as  a  plain,  earnest,  sensible  man  with  a  childlike,  religious  faith  and  a  keen  sense  of 
humor.     Illustrated.

will  be  delighted  with  his  letters.  He  wrote  in  a  good  style.  .  .and  he  described  what  he

stroyed almost  all  of  his  own  papers  and  letters,  but  his  biographer  has  acquired  a  good

founded  the  publishing  hottse  of  that  name.  Apart  from  the  personality  of  the  subject, 
the  biography  is  valuable  as  giving  sidelights  from  an  unusual  quarter  on  the  literary 
life  of  the  last  century.  His  letters  as  well  as  the  Macmillan  lists  reflect  the  history

An  excellent  book,  worthy  to  be  read  by  every  lover  of  good  English.  Mr  Hutton 
has  set  himself  to  write  fact  as  fiction,  endeavoring  to  grfve  an  impression  of  the  first 
part  of  the  15th  century  without  using  a  single  incident  which  is  not  authenticated.  His 
subject  is  that  strangest  and  yet  most  typical  of  Italian  despots;  and  his  mouthpiece  is 
a  certain  Pietro  Sanseverino,  a  wholly  imaginary  person,  but  one,  nevertheless,  who  tells 
the  story  of  his  patron's  life  as  seriously  as  Monsieur  Yriarte  himself  has  done,  and 
certainly  with  greater  accuracy.     Condensed  from  Nation,  1906.

this  time  he  kept  up  a  steady  correspondence  with  his  friend  Horace  Walpole. 

"Lord  Dover  describes  the  letters  on  Mann's  side  as  'voluminous,  but  particularly 
devoid  of  interest,  as  they  are  written  in  a  dry,  heavy  style,  and  consist  almost  entirely 
of  trifling  details  of  forgotten  Florentine  history'. .  .Their  contents  are  summarised  in 
two  volumes  published  by  Dr.  Doran . . .  They  abound  in  accounts  of  serenades,  fetes, 
masquerades,  court  ceremonial  and  Italian  eccentricities."  Dictionary  of  national  biog-

Wilstach,  Paul.  Richard  Mansfield,  the  man  and  the  actor.  1908. 

"Bibliography,"  p.485-490. 

Mr  Wilstach  was  associated  with  Mr  Mansfield  (1857-1907)  for  many  years,  was 
devoted  to  his  interests  and  writes  of  him  with  an  unwavering  and  self-evident  partiality. 
Though  packed  with  detail  and  somewhat  disorderly  in  arrangement,  the  book  succeeds 
in  revealing  his  powerful  personality  and  versatile  genius,  and  affords  glimpses,  through 
the  letters  to  Mrs  Mansfield  and  his  son,  of  a  tender  human  side  which  was  little  known 
to  the  world.

from  his  letters.    2v.     1910.    Moffat. 

"Worthy  memorial  of  a  brilliant  actor  by  his  trusted  friend  and  critic.  Volume  i 
is  devoted  to  the  life,  practically  commencing  with  Mansfield's  initial  New  York  success 
in  1883;  volume  2  takes  up  his  important  roles  in  order.  The  book  is  authoritative  in 
its  statements  of  fact,  sympathetic  and  just  in  its  estimate  of  Mansfield's  complex  char- 
acter and  the  nature  and  scope  of  his  genius,  and  contains  examples  of  felicitous  de- 
scription and  penetrating  analysis  that  rank  it  with  Mr  Winter's  best  critical  work.  The 
appendix  contains  a  forty-three  page  chronology  and  a  note  on  'The  gentle  art  of 
plagiarism,'  referring  to  Paul  Wilstach,  whose  interesting  life  of  Mansfield,  though 
fuller  on  the  biographical  side,  will  be  critically  superseded  by  this  authorized  biography. 
The  illustrations  consist  mostly  of  portraits  of  Mansfield  in  his  various  characters."

"An  illuminating  book. .  .Entering  upon  his  duties  in  the  spirit  of  an  interpreter 
rather  than  of  an  annalist,  M.  Monod  gives  us  seven  admirable  essays. .  .along  with 
copious  excerpts  from  Michelet's  journal  and  correspondence.  The  bulk  of  the  volume 
centres  in  the  historian's  activities  during  the  period  1839-51,  though  incidents  of  earlier 
and  later  life  come  into  view  from  time  to  time."     Nation,  igo6.

the  works  of  Mickiewicz  himself,  but  of  the  most  important  Polish  treatises  on  his  life

Warner  Mifflin  (1745—98)  was  a  Quaker  and  one  of  the  early  anti-slavery  leaders. 
In  1 774  he  freed  all  his  slaves  and  gave  them  compensation  for  past  services.  Through 
his  labors  most  of  the  members  of  the  Society  of  Friends  emancipated  their  slaves.

"Some  notes  on  the  private  life  of  John  Stuart  Mill,"  by  Mary  Taylor,  v.i,  p.39-46. 
The  interest  of  this  correspondence,  which  covers  the  period  from  1829  to  1873, 
is  threefold.  The  letters  tell  much  about  Mill's  own  character  which  his  autobiography 
does  not  reveal,  they  throw  light  on  some  of  the  leading  literary  figures  of  his  time, 
including  Carlyle,  Sterling  and  Bulwer,  and  they  give  a  clear  and  direct  impression  of 
the  public  questions  of  that  day  in  England.

spondence; the  letters  of  Deane  Swift  and  others  to  Sanderson  Miller, 
esq.,  of  Radway.    1910.    Murray. 

Sanderson  Miller  was  an  English  country  gentleman  with  a  reputation  as  an  amateur 
architect  and  a  capacity  for  friendship  of  which  these  letters  are  a  faithful  record. 
They  seldom  deal  with  public  affairs  but  are  largely  occupied  with  architectural  matters, 
in  regard  to  which  Miller's  friends  often  appealed  to  him  for  advice.  Prominent  among 
the  letters  are  those  of  Deane  Swift,  cousin  and  biographer  of  the  great  dean.  Miller's 
replies  have  not  been  preserved  and  we  thus  get  a  curiously  reflected  portrait  of  the 
man  as  he  appears  in  the  minds  of  his  friends.

They  were  politically  at  variance,  the   former   endeavoring  to  maintain  the  position   of

it  is  almost  entirely  free... But  few  of  her  admirers,  perhaps,  realize  the  trials  and  ob-

daughter of  the  king  of  Naples,  have  for  their  chief  points  of  interest  the  Bonaparte 
family  and  the  imperial  court.  Trivial  but  not  without  interest  as  a  collection  of  the 
gossip  of  Paris  and  Camden  place,  with  a  bias  against  the  empress  Eugenie.

The  Corsican;  a  diary  of  Napoleon's  life  in  his  own  words  [ed.  by

"Passages  selected  from  letters,  state  papers  and  conversations,  and  arranged  chron- 
ologically under  the  dates  to  which  they  refer,  not  under  the  dates  of  utterance.  They 
form  an  interesting  but  incomplete  and  disconnected  autobiography,  but  not  a  'diary'  as 
the  sub-title  states.  Its  value  is  lessened  by  the  editor's  failure  to  mention  sources  and 
to  tell  what  versions  have  gone  to  make  up  composite  entries,  and  the  absence  of  context 
renders  many  passages  vague.  A  work  of  little  or  no  historical  value,  but  of  decided 
interest  as  a  psychological  study."     A.  L.  A.  booklist,  1911.

Napoleon's  letters  to  Josephine,  1796-1812;  for  the  first  time  col- 
lected and  translated,  with  notes  social,  historical  and  chronological, 
from  contemporary  sources  by  H.  F.  Hall.    1901.    Dent. 

These  letters  are  neither  new  nor  of  much  importance.  The  framework  of  the 
book  is  an  elaborate  diary  of  Napoleonic  and  European  history  from  1796  to  1814,  in 
which  the  correspondence  is  inserted  in  batches.  Between  February  1797  and  May  1800, 
no  letters  are  available,  and  another  complete  vacuum  reaches  from  August  181 1  to  the 
date  of  Josephine's  death  in  181 4.  The  collection  may  be  accepted  as  generally  authentic. 
The  topics  of  the  letters  are  always  the  weather,  health,  clothes,  presents,  debts,  grumb- 
lings, and  other  intimate  personal  details,  the  whole  written  in  an  unaffected  good- 
natured  style.  The  exhaustive  notes  are  a  delightful  omnium  gatherum  of  Napoleonic 
lore,  but  are  often  foreign  to  the  context.     Condensed  from  Spectator,  i^z.

"This  book  has  been  read  with  more  enthusiasm,  and  criticized  with  more  severity, 
than  perhaps  any  other  life  of  Napoleon.  The  author  was  not  simply  an  ardent,  but  a 
boundless,  admirer  of  the  emperor.  Hi$  effort  was  to  create  an  enthusiasm  for  his  hero 
similar  to  that  which  he  himself  felt.  He  was  not  too  particular  in  regard  to  his  facts, 
but  those  which  he  made  use  of  he  arranged  with  such  consummate  skill  as  to  captivate 
completely  the  judgment  of  the  ignorant  and  the  unwary."  Adams's  Manual  of  histori-

Mme  Novikoff,  a  Russian  who  spent  many  years  in  England,  was  well  known  in 
diplomatic  circles  and  used  her  strong  influence  in  behalf  of  her  nation,  largely  for  the 
purpose  of  bringing  about  friendship  between  Russia  and  England.  Her  correspondents 
included  not  only  statesmen  and  politicians,  but  also  notable  hbtorians,  essayists  and 
church  dignitaries  of  the  last  40  years.

Palmer,  George  Herbert.  Life  of  Alice  Freeman  Palmer.  1908. 

The  work  of  Alice  Freeman  Palmer  (1855-1902)  was  of  historical  importance  in 
the  development  of  education  in  America.  Becoming  president  of  Wellesley  College 
at  the  age  of  26,  she  shaped  its  policies  in  the  direction  they  have  since  followed.  She 
was  a  member  of  the  Massachusetts  State  Board  of  Education  and  for  three  years  dean 
of  the  Woman's  Department  of  the  University  of  Chicago.  All  these  interests  are 
fully  treated  in  this  biography,  written  by  her  husband,  but  they  are  subordinated  to 
the  intimate  and  penetrating  study  of  Mrs  Palmer  as  a  woman.

French  throne  and  head  of  the  Legitimist  party  in  France.  In  1862  he  came  to  the 
United  States,  served  on  General  McClellan's  staff  and  afterwards  wrote  one  of  the 
most  valuable  of  the  many  histories  of  the  Civil  war.  This  biography  deals  chiefly  with 
his  public  and  political  life.

With  the  exception  of  one  or  two  points,  Mr  Wright's  two  volumes  bring  to  light 
no  detail  of  real  biographic  significance  not  to  be  found  in  Mr  Benson's  volume,  and 
few  not  adduced  in  Mr  Greenslet's  earlier  and  briefer  study.  The  reader  could  arise 
from  the  closest  perusal  of  the  two  volumes  with  little  sense  of  Pater's  peculiar  and 
charming  idiosyncrasy.  It  is,  in  short,  the  failure  of  the  "Boswellian"  method  in  biog-

The  general  result  of  the  present  study  is  to  support  the  traditional  view — what  may 
be  called  the  Roman  Catholic  view  of  Patrick's  work  and  of  his  relation  to  Rome.  Pro- 
fessor Bury's  method  is  sound  and  his  mind  singularly  unbiassed.  His  mastery  of  the

"The  book  is  one  of  deep  and  painful  interest,  the  only  one  in  existence  that  can 
be  compared  with  Rousseau's  'Confessions'  in  the  fidelity  with  which  it  lays  bare  the 
inmost  secrets  of  the  heart,  but  in  which,  unlike  the  'Confessions,'  the  author  does  him- 
self much  less  than  justice.  He  g^ves  a  far  less  favourable  impression  of  himself  than 
any  impartial  outside  observer  would  have  done,  and  draws  a  portrait  not  so  much  of 
what  he  really  was  at  the  time  of  which  he  writes,  as  of  what  he  seemed  to  himself 
through  the  morbid  recollections  of  the  past  and  the  often  not  less  morbid  entries  in

public  service.     1910.     Putnam. 

Under  the  sympathetic  hands  of  his  biog^rapher,  whose  tone  is  that  of  a  fervent  Re- 
publican, the  story  of  Mr  Piatt's  career  in  the  Senate  from  1879  to  1905  has  become 
almost  a  history  of  national  legislation  for  that  period.  Senator  Piatt  was  one  of  the 
last  of  our  patriarchal  statesmen,  representing  a  kind  of  ancient  severity  and  virtue,  men 
of  deeds  not  of  words.  For  a  score  of  years  he  spent  himself  devotedly  upon  matters  of 
high  public  concern  in  which  little  individual  glory  was  to  be  won.  It  was  he  who  put 
the  Patent  office  upon  an  independent  basis.  Of  the  cause  of  international  copyright 
he  made  himself  the  champion  and  for  years  he  served  on  the  Indian  committee.  Con-

at  Behistun,  marked  an  epoch  in  the  knowledge  of  Persia's  history  and  ancient  languages, 
and  also  prepared  the  way  for  the  decipherment  of  the  other  cuneiform  alphabets. 
Later  successful  work  was  accomplished  in  excavations  in  Babylonia  for  the  British

Memoirs,  with  special  reference  to  secession  and  the  Civil  war;  ed. 
by  W.  F.  McCaleb,  with  introduction  by  G.  P.  Garrison.  1906.  Neale. 
Reagan  (1818-1905)  was  a  self-made  man  who  rose  to  high  rank  under  the  ancien 
rigime  in  the  South  and  became  the  trusted  adviser  of  Jefferson  Davis.  He  was  a  man 
of  unusually  clear  vision,  of  absolute  honesty  and  few  abiding  prejudices.  The  main 
topics  treated  in  his  book  are  the  writer's  early  life  in  Texas,  the  organization  of  the 
Confederacy  at  Montgomery,  the  Civil  war  as  viewed  by  an  active  and  efficient  cabinet 
officer  in  Richmond,  and  the  problems  of  reconstruction.  The  most  interesting  portion 
of  the  book  is  the  plain  unvarnished  story  of  Reagan's  hardships  and  early  struggles. 
The  last  100  pages  contain  his  more  important  speeches  in  Congress  and  his  public  let- 
ters of  1865-66.     Condensed  from  American  historical  review,  1907.

Napoleon's  invasion  of  Prussia  and  knew  Stein  and  many  of  the  public  men  of  the  day. 
The  interest  of  the  book  lies  chiefly,  however,  in  the  description  of  the  countess's 
domestic  life  and  of  her  various  religious  and  philanthropic  activities.

"His  style  is  fair  in  both  the  senses  in  which  we  use  the  word — in  that  of  being 
temperate  and  just,  and  in  that  of  being  without  a  flaw;  and  these  Reminiscences  of 
his  younger  years... are  perhaps  the  most  complete  revelation  of  it... The  first  chapters 
...are  not  the  most  vivid,  though  they  contain  a  very  interesting  picture  of  the  author's 
birthplace,  the  little  dead  town  of  Treguier. .  .It  is  when  he  comes  to  dip  into  his  own 
spiritual  history  that  M.  Renan  shows  himself  a  masterly  narrator. .  .The  chapters  on 
the  two  seminaries  in  which  he  spent  the  first  years  of  his  residence  in  Paris,  Saint 
Nicholas  du  Chardonnet  and  Saint  Suplice,  are  full  of  the  most  acute  notation  of  moral 
and  intellectual  conditions . . .  He  traces  with  singular  art  the  process  by  which,  young, 
simple,  devout,  dedicated  to  the  church  from  his  infancy... he  found  himself  confronted 
with  the  fact  that  he  could  no  longer  be  a  Catholic."  Henry  James,  in  Atlantic  monthly.

Among  the  German  writers  now  living  there  is  no  man  who,  for  simple,  whole- 
some humanity,  can  compare  with  the  Austrian,  whose  name  is  not  only  a  household 
word  in  the  humblest  homes  of  his  native  Steinnark,  but  whose  works  are  read  through- 
out the  world.  This  book  is  written  by  one  who  with  honest  enthusiasm  has  traced  the 
development  of  his  hero  not  only  in  his  books,  but  among  the  people  of  his  native 
province.  The  work  has  the  flavor  of  the  soil  and  the  atmosphere  of  the  plein  air  por- 
trait    Condensed  from  Nation,  1907.

Letters  of  Dante  Gabriel  Rossetti  to  William  Allingham,  1854-1870

These  familiar  letters  of  Rossetti  to  his  intimate  friend,  the  Irish  poet,  are  ranked 
among  the  best  he  ever  wrote,  and  show  him  in  a  particularly  attractive  light.  Alling- 
ham was  the  friend  of  many  great  writers  of  the  time  and  their  names  occur  frequently 
in  these  letters.     Illustrations  from  drawings  by  Rossetti  and  others.

Scott  (181 1-78)  was  an  eminent  English  architect,  a  leader  in  the  Gothic  revival. 
He  was  employed  in  restoring  many  old  English  churches,  notably  Westminster  abbey

James  Skene,  a  Scottish  lawyer  with  a  love  of  letters,  was  a  lifelong  friend  of 
Scott.  The  manuscript  of  his  "Memories"  was  offered  to  Lockhart,  who,  from  some 
motive  of  delicacy,  did  not  use  it,  and  it  has  remained  in  the  possession  of  Mr  Skene's 
descendants  ever  since.  A  great-grandson  now  publishes  it,  with  an  introduction  and 
useful  notes.  While  the  pages  reveal  nothing  of  historical  importance,  they  add  greatly 
to  an  appreciation  of  Scott's  character.

refined  intellect,  and  a  singularly  sympathetic  social  nature."     Editor.

"Quite  as  much  a  picture  of  Mr.  Chesterton  as  a  study  of  Mr.  Shaw.  The  two- 
edged  quality  of  criticism  has  never  made  a  more  striking  or  amusing  display  of  itself 
than  in  this  analysis  of  the  supposedly. .  .Shavian. .  .characteristics. .  .As  to  the  plan  and 
scope  of  the  book,  it  begins  with  a  characteristic  assertion:  'Most  people  either  say  that 
they  agree  with  Bernard  Shaw  or  that  they  do  not  understand  him.  I  am  the  only 
person  who  understands  him,  and  I  do  not  agree  with  him.'  Then  follow. .  .chapters  on 
Mr.  Shaw  as  an  Irishman,  as  a  Puritan,  and  as  a  Progressive;  but  the  greater  part  of 
the  book  is  devoted  to  'The  Critic,'  'The  Dramatist,'  and  'The  Philosopher.'  Hence  it  is, 
as  was  natural,  more  a  study  of  the  writer  than  of  the  man."    Dial,  1909.

Though  fulsome  in  its  admiration  and  somewhat  disfigured  by  imposing  literary 
allusions,  French  phrases  and  a  journalistic  exuberance,  this  500-page  biography  is  a  docu-

and  opinions  as  he  wishes  to  be  generally  known.  There  is  no  other  authority  (1911) 
for  the  interesting  period  of  his  childhood  in  Dublin,  when  the  love  of  music  seems  to 
have  been  his  first  interest,  nor  has  so  much  been  told  before  of  his  early  literary  work

This  little  book  will  afford  great  satisfaction  to  the  admirers  of  Bernard  Shaw;  for 
the  author  is  an  enthusiastic  disciple  of  that  brilliant  but  erratic  propagandist.  It  is 
cleverly  written  in  a  style  that  often  suggests  what  the  faithful  call  the  Shavian  attitude 
and  manner,  gives  an  apparently  authoritative  summary  of  his  various  theories,  political 
and  the  like,  and  furnishes  some  significant  facts  which  may  help  to  account  for  a  good 
many  of  them.     Condensed  from  Nation,  1907.

Shelley,  Percy  Bysshe — continued.  92  S545ho 

from  which  to  write  the  poet's  biography.  The  result  was  a  surprise  and  a  disappoint- 
ment. Hogg  took  unwarrantable  liberties  with  his  materials,  and  Shelley's  representa- 
tives, fearing  that  the  prosecution  of  the  work  would  result  in  stereotyping  a  caricature, 
withdrew  the  documents  on  which  Hogg  had  depended  for  continuing  it. 

"Hogg's  offences  as  a  biographer  are  g:rave...Yet  how  much  less  we  should  have 

known  of  the  youthful  Shelley  if  Hogg  had  not  written The  book  is  indispensable  for 

one  who  would  know  Shelley;  and  yet  for  one  who  would  know  Shelley  fully  and  aright 
it  is  wholly  insufficient.  It  is  a  fragment  not  only  in  the  sense  that  it  tells  no  more 
than  a  portion  of  the  story,  it  is  fragmentary  also  in  its  presentation  of  Shelley's  char-

Appeared  first  in  "Fraser's  magazine,"  v.57-62,  June  1858-March  1862. 
Among  the  memorabilia  of  Shelley's  friends  the  memoirs  which  Thomas  Love  Pea- 
cock contributed  to  the  pages  of  "Fraser's  magazine"  will  always  hold  an  important 
place.  These  memoirs  have  only  once  been  reprinted  and  have  been  for  many  years  out 
of  print.  Mr  Brett-Smith's  introduction  gives  an  account  of  Peacock's  association  with 
Shelley.  Peacock's  record  contains  many  particulars  that  are  not  to  be  found  in  other 
accounts  of  Shelley,  but  in  his  desire  for  impartiality  he  sometimes  appears  to  fail  in 
sympathy.  As  a  clear  and  circumstantial  chronicle  of  the  chief  events  in  the  poet's  life 
it  is  especially  valuable.     Condensed  from  Outlook  (London),  1910.

"Mr.  Smith  undertakes  to  realise  to  us  what  Shelley  was  as  a  man  and  as  a  writer, 
introducing  the  leading  biographical  facts  more  by  way  of  illustration  than  of  regular 
narrative.  This  design  is  carried  'out  with  a  fair  amount  of  consistency,  and  a  moderate 
instalment  of  success;  and  it  was  worth  trying,  for  one  cannot  say  that  the  same  sort 
of  treatment  has  as  yet  been  applied,  in  any  substantial  form,  to  the  career  of  Shelley 
...Mr.  Smith  tells  us  a  few  things. .  .which  are  new...  others  which  are  new  without

while  the  general  sketch  of  events,  though  making  fully  a  third  of  the  bulk,  is  quite 
without  distinction.  The  pervading  tone,  moreover,  is  persistently  eulogistic,  though  not 
offensively  so;  and  one  looks  in  vain  for  any  critical  appraisal  of  Sherman's  notable

Sidney,  English  patriot  and  politician,  was  the  son  of  the  second  earl  of  Leicester. 
After  the  discovery  of  the  Rye  house  plot  he  was  imprisoned  in  the  Tower  of  London 
on  the  charge  of  being  implicated,  and  was  eventually  executed.  This  biography  con-

don Press. 

As  a  memorial  of  friendship  it  is  worthy  of  a  place  among  the  classics  of  human 
history.  It  is  the  source  of  the  classical  story  of  Sidney's  death;  it  is  the  best  likeness 
of  the  young  "president  of  learning  and  chivalry"  which  has  been  left  us  by  a  con- 
temporary; and  it  is  a  remarkable  testimony  by  an  experienced  statesman  to  the  great- 
ness of  Elizabeth's  government.  The  whole  work  commands  admiration  as  an  archaic 
but  noble  expression  of  the  same  spirit  of  chivalry  that  animated  Sidney  and  Spenser.

Bishop  Simpson  (181 1-84)  was,  during  the  first  years  of  his  ministry,  pastor  of 
the  Liberty  street  church  of  Pittsburgh.  He  was  made  bishop  in  1852  and  ranked  as 
one  of  the  most  eloquent  preachers  in  the  Methodist  church.

Story  of  my  life;  ed.  by  his  son,  H.  Marion-Sims.    1884.    Appleton. 

Noted  Southern  surgeon  (1813-83). 

The  autobiography  extends  only  through  the  year  1863. 

"It  requires  a  very  clear  conscience  and  perfect  guilelessness  to  expose  one's  self  as 
he  has  done;  but  having  done  it  the  reader  sees  an  earnest  man  of  complete  purity,  dis- 
charging his  daily  duty  with  singleness  of  purpose,  and  reaching  fame  by  conscientiout 
and  intelligent  exercise  of  brain  and  hand.  But  the  story  is  more  than  an  autobiogra- 
phy: it  not  merely  illustrates  the  evolution  of  a  South  Carolina  lad  into  one  of  the  most 
useful  and  conspicuous  of  modern  benefactors;  it  is  local  history  interpreting  rural  life 
in  that  section  fifty  years  ago."    Nation,  1885.

Goldwin  Smith  (1823-19 10)  was  a  publicist  of  two  nations.  Educated  at  Oxford,  he 
became  a  tutor  and  then  a  professor  there.  In  1868  he  came  to  America  and  was  for 
two  years  professor  in  Cornell  University.  Thence  he  went  to  Toronto,  where  the  last 
40  years  of  his  life  were  spent.  He  was  a  reasonable  and  constant  critic  of  public 
events,  and  of  this  his  reminiscences  pve  abundant  evidence.  Among  the  topics  dis- 
cussed are  American  Civil  war  times,  the  Manchester  school  of  political  economy  and  its 
leaders,  visits  to  Jamaica,  Europe,  Washington  and  the  Northwest,  and  Canadian  politics.

life-record,  beginning  in  the  workhouse,  where  he  was  cruelly  treated,  continuing  in  a 
hand-to-mouth  existence,  a  voyage  to  America,  soldier  life  in  the  Civil  war,  the  ups  and

Letters;  ed.  by  Sidney  Colvin.    4v.    191 1.    Scribner. 
Biographical  edition. 

These  four  volumes  constitute  a  definitive  edition  of  Stevenson's  correspondence. 
Here  the  two  series,  "Vailima  letters"  and  "Letters  to  his  family  and  friends,"  are 
united  and  set  in  chronological  order,  with  the  addition  of  some  150  new  letters.  The 
result  is  a  comprehensive  view  of  Stevenson's  life  and  interests  as  revealed  in  his  letters. 
The  new  letters  relate  for  the  most  part  to  his  early  life  and  the  correspondents  of  this 
fresh  instalment  are  mainly  Sidney  Colvin,  Mrs  Sitwell,  W.  £.  Henley,  and  the  writer's

Moors,  H.  J.    With  Stevenson  in  Samoa.    1910.    Small. 

These  memoirs,  while  adding  little  of  importance  to  our  knowledge  of  Stevenson's 
character,  are  distinctly  interesting  because  of  the  angle  from  which  they  are  written. 
The  author,  a  shopkeeper,  dealer  in  real  estate,  and  local  politician  in  Samoa,  had  an 
interest  in  his  subject  which  was  rather  neighborly  than  literary.  Book  bears  witness  to 
the  friendliest  intimacy  and  to  the  fact  that  Stevenson  was  able  to  mix  familiarly  with 
all  sorts  of  men  on  their  own  ground.     Condensed  from  Nation,  igio.

years  of  these  memoirs  ambassador  in  London.  She  observed  with  keen  sense  the  court

Tidour  de  la  Cartrie,  Toussaint-Ambroise,  cotnte  de  la  Villenihe.  92  T166 
Memoirs  of  the  count  de  Cartrie;  a  record  of  the  extraordinary 
events  in  the  life  of  a  French  royalist  during  the  war  in  La  Vendee 
and  of  his  flight  to  Southampton  where  he  followed  the  humble  occu- 
pation of  gardener;  with  an  introduction  by  Frederic  Masson,  appen- 
dices and  notes  by  P.  A.  Pichot  and  other  hands.     1906.     Lane. 

The  result  of  the  painstaking  investigations  of  M.  Pichot,  one  of  the  most  skilful 
unravelers  of  historical  problems  connected  with  the  revolution  in  France,  establishes 
the  genuineness  of  these  memoirs  and  their  substantial  accuracy  beyond  reasonable  doubt. 
Their  interest  is  great  and  they  have  considerable  historic  value,  although  the  author 
may  not  have  played  a  preponderant  role  in  the  military  events  he  describes.  The  pub- 
lisher's account  of  the  discovery  of  the  manuscript  is  one  of  the  romances  of  publishing.

Theodore  Thomas's  life  (1835—1905)  was  for  several  decades  the  life  of  a  musical 
frontiersman.  He  was  not  only  one  of  the  first  to  give  New  Yorkers  their  musical 
education,  but  he  soon  extended  his  mission  to  a  number  of  other  cities  by  establishing 
his  musical  "highway,"  and  finally  his  orchestra  in  Chicago.  In  the  annals  of  music 
there  are  few  chapters  so  interesting  as  those  in  which  Mrs  Thomas  relates  how  the 
great  conductor  gradually  enlisted  the  sympathies  of  the  captains  of  industry  in  that 
city,  persuading  them,  with  the  aid  of  his  friends  to  erect  for  him  a  special  building.

poets.  Mr  Macaulay  has  done  well  with  a  rather  difficult  subject.  The  comparison  of 
Thomson's  attitude  toward  nature  with  that  of  his  contemporaries  and  successors  is 
especially  well  carried  out.

In  spite  of  drawbacks,  a  valuable  and  in  many  ways  an  illuminatlig  biography.  Mr 
Kfaude  is  an  Englishman  who  received  part  of  his  education  in  Moscow  and  who  lived 
for  than  20  years  in  Russia,  becoming  acquainted  with  Tolstoi  in  1887.  He  more  than 
atones  for  his  inadequacy  as  a  literary  critic  by  the  understanding  with  which  he  portrays 
Tolstoi's  personality.  He  writes  with  ease  and  simplicity  and  with  an  abundance  of 
concrete  illustration.  Considerable  portions  of  the  work  have  been  revised  by  the 
countess  Tolstoi  or  by  Tolstoi  himself,  so  that  its  accuracy  may  be  generally  relied  on.

Tooke  (1736-18 1 2)  was  an  English  politician  and  philologist.  The  theory  that 
he  was  the  author  of  the  Junius  letters,  to  prove  which  is  the  main  purpose  of  the  book, 
seems  never  to  have  been  very  seriously  considered.

Torrey  (1813-46)  was  devoted  to  the  cause  of  abolition  in  Maryland.  When,  in 
1844,  it  was  discovered  that  he  had  aided  in  the  escape  of  several  slaves  he  was  sentenced 
to  a  long  imprisonment.  He  died  two  years  later  from  the  effects  of  prison  life  and 
was  regarded  in  the  North  as  a  martyr  to  the  antislavery  cause.

of  "The  innocents  abroad."  The  genial  spirit  of  the  immortal  fun-maker  himself  has 
touched  the  hundred  pages  of  reminiscence  with  characteristic  gaiety,  and  it  is  a  vivid 
picture  one  gets,  not  simply  of  Mark  Twain,  but  of  a  rare  friendship  between  two  richly

My  life;  authorized  translation  from  the  German.    2v,    191 1.    Dodd. 

This  autobiography  was  privately  printed  in  1871  and  the  half  dozen  copies  given 
to  intimate  friends,  republication  for  the  world  at  large  being  deferred  till  years  after 
Wagner's  death.  "Mein  leben"  closes  with  the  year  1864,  but,  though  a  torso,  it  takes  its 
place  at  once  among  the  world's  great  autobiographies.  It  is  very  full  in  regard  to 
Wagner's  childhood  and  youth  and  much  of  it  is  devoted  to  a  narrative  of  the  ill  luck 
which  pursued  him,  through  the  greater  part  of  his  career,  because  of  his  unfortunate 
determination  to  be  a  composer.  The  author  tells  a  plain  tale  sparing  himself  no  more 
than  others  when  occasion  for  censure  arrives.  He  gives  glimpses  into  the  workshop  of 
his  genius  and  throws  a  flood  of  light  on  the  musical  conditions  of  his  time  in  most 
European  countries;  and  finally,  what  many  readers  will  relish  most,  there  are  many 
comments  on  great  musicians  who  befriended  or  opposed  him — Liszt,  Schumann, 
Mendelssohn,  Berlioz,  Meyerbeer,  Biilow,  Saint-Saens  and  a  host  of  others.  Condensed

of  the  century,  with  the  exception  of  Wagner's  Letters  to  Frau  Wesendonck.  It  con- 
tains a  large  number  of  the  master's  letters  which  have  never  before  been  printed,  and 
it  gives  so  many  interesting  glimpses  of  life  behind  the  scenes — ^both  literally  and  figura- 
tively— that  in  a  short  time  it  has  reached  its  fourth  edition.  Neumann  began  his  career 
as  a  baritone,  50  years  ago.  He  became  a  Wagner  enthusiast  during  the  Vienna  con- 
certs in  1862  and  in  1876  he  became  joint  manager,  with  Aug^ust  Forster,  of  the  Leipzig 
Stadttheater,  and  from  that  time  on  he  played  a  role  in  the  life  of  Wagner,  the  im- 
portance of  which  has  heretofore  been  known  to  few.  The  Leipzig  performances  were 
a  brilliant  success,  and  so  were  those  Neumann  gave  at  the  Victoria  Theatre  in  Berlin. 
Neumann  afterward  gained  Wagner's  consent  for  his  project  of  a  traveling  Wagner 
theatre.  The  adventures  which  befell  them  in  Paris,  London,  and  the  other  European 
cities  down  to  Italy  take  up  the  remaining  pages  of  Neumann's  reminiscences.  Con- 
densed from  Nation,  igoy.

The  expedition  in  1753,  made  under  Gov.  Dinwiddie's  order,  was  with  the  object  of 
warning  the  French  against  encroaching  in  the  Ohio  country.  He  reports  on  the  ad- 
vantages of  the  "forks  of  the  Ohio"  as  a  situation  for  a  fort.  The  northern  and  south-

with  all  parts  of  the  Union  during  his  term  of  office.

The  author,  personal  friend  and  physician  of  John  Wesley,  was  chosen  by  him  as

and  Thomas  Coke,  published  a  life  without  having  had  access  to  them.

"Mr  Willson  has  visited  almost  every  scene  in  which  Wolfe  moved,  in  Britain,  on 
the  Continent,  and  in  America,  and  has  used  great  diligence  in  gathering  information 
and  unearthing  letters.  The  new  information  is  small  in  amount  and  about  trifling 
things;  but  the  mass  of  correspondence  here  for  the  first  time  collected  is  a  real  en- 
richment...  It  almost  constitutes  the  book,  besides  giving  its  chief  value;  for  the  author's 
own  contribution  consists,  over  a  great  part  of  the  volume,  of  little  more  than  con- 
necting paragraphs."     Athenaum,  1909.

"Seldom  can  a  book  have  borne  a  more  accurate  title.  Sir  Henry  gives  an  outline 
of  his  diplomatic  and  Parliamentary  career,  throws  in  a  few  notes  of  travel  with  some 
sidelights  on  the  political  history  of  his  time,  but  his  main  interest  is  personal,  and  he 
ambles  gently  on  from  man  to  man  that  he  has  known."    Nation,  190S.

Smith,  Logan  Pearsall.  Life  and  letters  of  Sir  Henry  Wotton.  2v. 
1907.     Clarendon  Press. 

"Prose  works,  poems  and  letters  of  Sir  Henry  Wotton,"  v.2,  p.412-454. 
Sir  Henry  Wotton  (i 568-1 639)  is  familiar  to  lovers  of  English  literature  through 
a  few  enduring  poems,  particularly  the  "Character  of  a  happy  life,"  and  the  memoir  by 
Izaak  Walton,  prefixed  to  his  collection  of  Wotton's  works.  Wotton  passed  the  active 
years  of  his  life  in  high  diplomatic  office  and  ended  his  days  as  provost  of  Eton.  Mr 
Smith  has  changed  his  vague  image  into  a  vivid  portrait.  He  has  come  only  a  little 
short  of  producing  a  literary  masterpiece.  He  devotes  two  hundred  and  twenty-five 
pages  to  a  compactly  detailed  biography  of  Wotton.  This  is  followed  by  Wotton's  let- 
ters, more  than  half  of  which  are  here  printed  for  the  first  time.  Condensed  from
